Cisco's designed its latest wireless networking router for the home, which could work nicely for home-based entrepreneurs looking for a simplified way to cut the Ethernet cord.

For many small business owners, the daily commute involves walking down the hall instead of driving down the highway. But that doesn’t mean they don't need a wireless network. Who wants to be limited to working in the back bedroom all day? Cisco's announced a new router, designed to provide a a wireless network that's simple to setup in the home. Wi-FiPlanet.com has the details.

Cisco is bringing its brand to entry-level networking consumers with a new wireless router product line it's calling Valet.

The Valet is an effort by Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) to mimic the simplicity of its Flip video camera for the needs of home networking users. Flip's parent company, Pure Digital, was acquired by Cisco last year for $590 million. The Flip targets novice users with simple setup and use, the same features that Cisco is now pitching for home networks with the Valet.
